Michigan police have busted three men accused of stealing dozens of exotic animals.

More than 50 snakes, lizards, and even a wallaby were found when police raided a Livonia home.

Several of the animals had been stolen from Hazel Kelly's pet store.

Two of them, Rupert the lizard and Jeremiah the bullfrog, were Kelly's personal pets.

She says that nearly $50,000 worth of animals were taken from her store, and although only a few of them were recovered by police, she's happy to have Rupert and Jeremiah back.
